The library is participating in a new program offered in partnership with the Northeast Kansas Library System. Details about the program can be found at this webpage: https://tscpl.org/state-park-passes
Beginning Sunday, May 1 through the end of this year, we will be distributing single day vehicle permits at the customer service desk. Staff working the desk will write the date the customer plans to use the permit on the front of the permit ticket. Permits do not need to be returned. We will offer one permit per customer vehicle. Customers may receive multiple single day permit tickets over the remaining months of this year. We are not keeping track of customer names and who’s already received a permit.
The permit ticket look like this:
The tickets have an ID number linked to our library written on the front of them. We have to write the date the ticket will be used on the ticket before handing it to the customer. This means the customer has to pick a specific day they plan to use the pass. We are unable to issue multiple tickets to customers who aren’t sure what day they want to go or who plan to go for several days to one or more parks. For each visit a customer makes to the customer service desk, the rules are this:
1 permit ticket = 1 vehicle entry valid for 1 specific day at any of 28 Kansas state parks
While these tickets are free to customers, we are paying $5.00 per ticket for the permit passes. We will be monitoring quantities and ordering additional permits as needed.
